Nottingham Olympian Andy Turner appeals for help on Twitter after his house is burgled during his mum's funeral.
The 33-year-old athlete, who took bronze in the 110 metres hurdles at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, used his Twitter page @andyturner110h to talk about the break-in on the day of his mum's funeral.
'Please help, my mum's funeral today, whilst at the function, we were burgled and everything was stolen including my car, laptop, phone plus loads of other stuff.
'My car is a white Ranger Rover Sport L10 run but looks like 110 run, RT please.
'Can't believe these people could do this on a day like today, please help catch them. Please RT this and get these people caught.
'This happened in Hucknall in Nottingham around 8pm tonight, please help if u see a White Range Rover Sport or Mac please phone the police.'
Mr Turner, who was born in Hucknall, said he was 'absolutely devastated' by the break-in. His 58-year-old mum died suddenly on October 29.
